    Horrid limbs, weak neck, crop and loin area and the feet aren't great... Also not possible 1200 pounds, that makes him heavier then my 17hh hanovarian!

    Think this through, and then, if you still think it is a good idea, think it over again.

    I picked up a registered APHA gelding, futurity eligible (now nominated), Breeders Trust (means he can win money) - cute little yearling for 800. No way you can breed one cheaper than what you can buy - and if all you want is a grade trail horse, you can pick one of those yearlings off of Craigslist or Dreamhorse for a couple hundred.Tops. Then you don't have to risk your mare's life, hope for a colored and healthy baby, then wait three years to ride (and that's if you put it under saddle as a 2 year old).

    No reason AT ALL to breed grade horses. Especially not 14 hand appy ponies.

    Yeah, I decided against it yesterday. I will wait till I find a good Morgan or Friesian to breed her to, if I breed her at all.

    I think that's a wiser decision ^^ because he doesn't have great conformation - won't improve your mare if you want something taller or sturdier and no guarantee you would get anything with chrome or spots
    We had a horse boarded with us for a long time that was a dark bay, no white on him at all that was an Appy x bay TB
    Its a lot easier to get what you want by going out and buying it 'off the peg'

    Most (if not all) Morgans or Friesian stud owners will not breed thier good stock to a grade horse. It reduces the value of their stud.

    If you really want to breed a mare I suggest picking up a well bred broodmare (they are also readily available cheap due to a down market) - then you can produce a baby that has a good chance at a good life.

    Good luck in your decisions....

    My mare isn't grade. She is a morgan. We are working on DNA samples trying to get her registered. And I know a lot wont breed to unreg. Horses. But I happen to know of a friesian that they don't care what it is bred to as long as it is healthy and such. And I spoke with a older gentleman about a black morgan stud a while back, and he would've bred his stud to my mare as well. As long as she was healthy.

    Without papers backing up a linage, she is for all intents and purposes, considered a grade horse.

    I would look less at the breed of the stallion and more if it complements your mare. Friesian crosses as a general rule either work out amazing or end up like an equine frankenstein monster. Make sure the stud matches/complements the mare. Just because a stud owner is willing to take your money and let their stallion cover your mare does not mean its the right stallion.

    A good Frisian stallion generally isn't allowed to breed outside the breed as they risk losing their licence.

    A lot of people in the US are using Friesians to cross with breeds like Arabians & Morgans for the Sport Horse market so finding someone with a stallion isn't that hard
    Unless the OP is wanting to show the offspring in breed classes I don't see that it matters if the mare is registered or not as long as she's got good conformation
